Sustainability and the Climate Crisis
A week of discussion
March 15-19, 2021
During the unfolding environmental emergency, when the effects of global warming and biodiversity loss are beginning to be felt acutely across the globe, our common future depends on researchers across disciplines working together to address the issue. This need is as important at Concordia University as it is elsewhere. In fact, as a Next Generation institution recently recognized as the leading Canadian University under 50, the Concordia community arguably is especially well-positioned to do so. With this in mind, in March 2021, the Loyola Sustainability Research Centre and the Loyola College for Diversity and Sustainability collaborated with Concordia's 4th Space to host a week of online discussion and conversation on the environmental crisis, focussing particularly on the climate emergency.
In case you missed any of the events or would like to revisit any of them, please see the recordings below.
